Default Lily, Lady Holder of Pern

This is Lady Holder Lily, she is on her way to the gather and her hold can be seen in the old grayed cave wall drawing behind her.



.



This is our lovely member Lily, who was so patient in waiting for me to get to her portrait. I hope you all enjoy it, it was truly a wonderful pleasure to do this for her....Maelin

The blue and the purple are great colours. And with the short hair she looks like a dragonrider as well.

Lovely, she does look just like a Lady! And I like the detail of the hold/drawing behind her.

Apo, what does your title mean? House of Pern Delights to match your siggy? (which it doesnt, quite)
Hmm, Wonder how Maelin would see that when she comes to do your portrait?

WOW !!! I am am so pleased by all the lovely compliments to both of us. This portrait was such a joy to do, and the Lady herself such a sweet person to comunicate with, that this one was done before I realized it.

@ Lily, I am so glad that you like your portrait so much, you truely are the gracious Lady Holder of Pern.

Lily, I made a comment to Apo, after seeing photos of her fantastic house. It is filled with so many Pern treasures that it just reminded me of a House of Delights for all the Pern lovers, and she is the Madam of the house... There you have it ...Madam of the Pern House of Delights

A hint for a necklace similar to the one in Lily's portrait......search dragon necklace on eBay. I found one, albeit in pewter, that is VERY similar to that. I've considered gold leafing over it or gold paint, but haven't the nerve as of yet.

Becky, The necklace I used in Lily's Lady Holder portrait, is kind of like that one that you have, just a bit larger and holding a gem in its paws. I wanted it to look a little different and more grand for such a lovley Lady Holder.
There is a photo of the basic necklace I used in the archives somewhere around here. It's the one Hans gifted to Cheryl and Anneli and the one I found and also bought.
I did cover it in gold paint (which can easily washed off) to get the look of what I was wanting for Lily's portrait...anything for the sake of the artwork is used here. I don't know of any other necklace that looks like this one other than that beautiful one that Cheryl bought and wore at the World con. Maybe you should talk real nice to her, and she can tell you where to find one for yourself.
